Hwang and Jimenez duo pictured in latest training photos as duo step up recovery from injury

The Wolves players have been gearing up for this weekend’s clash with Chelsea – and Hwang Hee-chan and Raul Jimenez are both in the latest batch of training photos as they close on their returns from injury.

Wanderers are currently managerless after parting company with Bruno Lage on Sunday.

The 2-0 defeat against West Ham United was the final straw for the board, who acted decisively in the face of a strong reaction from fans on social media.

Lage lasted 16 months at Molineux, and the search is now on for his successor.

There has been plenty of talk over the past few days.

But it seems Julen Lopetegui is the man most likely to get the job at this moment in time.

Supposedly, he will take charge of his final game for Sevilla tonight against Borussia Dortmund. He’s reported to be Wolves’ top choice.

With no one yet in place though, U18s and U21s managers Steve Davis and James Collins have been putting the players through their paces in training.

The duo will be taking the team on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

Wolves today released some new photos from training this week and, encouragingly, both Hwang and Jimenez are both pictured.

Neither player was available for the game against West Ham last Saturday.

£14 million star Hwang returned from international duty with an injury. And Jimenez has been nursing an injury around the groin area pretty much since the start of the new season.

There is one photo of Jimenez seemingly in the gym, which may suggest he perhaps won’t be ready for Saturday.

There’s also just one photo of Hwang, who is outside and doing some kind of movement exercise involving a rubber band and some poles. The South Korean winger may well have just been doing individual work as he is not pictured with any teammates.

Boost for Wolves as Hwang and Jimenez are pictured training, as duo step up recovery from injury

Neither player has been in good form this season. But it’s good to see Hwang and Jimenez are seemingly stepping up their recoveries.

A new manager is coming in, and both will want to get back to full fitness as soon as possible.

Wanderers simply have to start scoring more goals, and Hwang and Jimenez have both shown they are capable in a Wolves shirt.

It remains to be seen if either will be involved against Chelsea on Saturday.

If not though, perhaps the following game against Nottingham Forest will mark their returns.
